BrewDog Hardcore IPA

BrewDog Hardcore IPA
75An intriguing and powerful golden beer echoing the American style where strength and hops both aspire to new levels. The excessive alcohol tends to spoil the balance for me but, as the label says: ‘...

BrewDog How to Disappear Completely

BrewDog How to Disappear Completely
78A brave attempt to pack the extravagant hop character found in strong American beers into a session bitter. It's an interesting idea, and certainly showcases the wonders of hops, but without the alcoh...

BrewDog Paradox Isle of Arran
85A dark-ruby-coloured imperial stout matured in Isle of Arran whisky casks. It's very well balanced, too, so the oak and the whisky do not dominate other flavours. Carbonation just a little low on this...

BrewDog Punk IPA

BrewDog Punk IPA
75Very tasty, aggressive beer from a funky Scottish microbrewery that models itself on the US craft brewing movement. But it's so flavoursome that it may prove too demanding for some drinkers.

Fruity, clean, dry, citrus, pink grapefruit. Good hop nose, clean bitterness. Sulphitic notes. Balanced full palate, dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Astringent.

BrewDog Trashy Blonde

BrewDog Trashy Blonde
78The bitterness in the finish is a just a little harsh but otherwise this is an impressive, golden beer with plenty of body and, as you'd expect from Brew Dog, no shortage of taste.

BrewDog Zeitgeist

BrewDog Zeitgeist
78A black lager that drinks like a crisp, clean stout and is likely to be of more appeal to stout drinkers than lager buyers.
